Hot Slut Of The Day!

Nancy Martinez (born name: Nancy Martin-Quirion), the Taylor Dayne of Canada! A French Canadian going from the name Nancy Martin-Quirion to the stage name Nancy Martinez ranks high on my list of Favorite Ridiculous Name Changes right under Portia de Rossi.

In case you need to be reminded that pop stars in the 80s really brought us heaping amounts of glamour, intrigue and storytelling, here’s Nancy Martinez, a one-hit freestyle nightingale from Montreal, giving you all of that and more in the video for her one semi-hit sing song “For Tonight.“For Tonight” got as far as #32 on the Billboard charts in 1986 and her next single “Move Out” didn’t really go anywhere, but it really didn’t matter that she never became a worldwide mega pop star. Because Nancy Martinez had already made her glamorous mark on the world by giving us a song that made you want to slip on a pair of black gloves and dance against a chain link fence, and by giving us a video that was everything you could ever want out of a video from the 80s. 

If you wanted to make a masterpiece video in the 80s, these are the ingredients you needed to do so:

1. A fake rooftop. No, not a real rooftop, a fake rooftop. Only boring shit happened on real rooftops, but DRAMA and STRUGGLE happened on fake rooftops.

2. A blueish-purple-ish filter. The blue-ish filter was the Instagram sepia filter of the 80s.

3. Elbow-length black gloves and midriffs.

4. Fight dancing! At the beginning of “For Tonight,” Nancy Martinez and her boyfriend (or maybe that’s her gay best friend, it’s unclear) get into some serious neck-snapping fight dancing. My guess is that her dude just back from his audition for the chorus of a community theater production of West Side Story and he didn’t get cast, so he’s taking it out on her with a little dramatic fight dancing. Nancy is so over it, because all she wants is just one night with less drama and a lot more candlelight. Is that so much to ask?

5. A chain link fence. If you weren’t dancing against a chain link fence, were you really dancing?

Put all that together and you get this bright shining, blue filtered jewel:

Who knew that in 1986, Laura Jeanne Poon worked as Nancy Martinez’s choreographer?

And if you don’t pass through a doorway like this:

…then you’re passing through a doorway wrong.

That video and that song are both drops of perfection and Nancy Martinez is forever a French-Canadian freestyle queen!
